HTC has sent a media invite to an event in Taiwan on November 2 where it is widely expected to unveil a new variant of the U11 flagship smartphone that it began selling earlier this year. The invite reads a big “U” at the top, fuelling the rumours of an unconfirmed U11 handset.
According to some rumers, HTC appears to be working on at least two different handsets. One of the handset purportedly is the HTC U11 Plus, a new variant of the U11 flagship with improved processor and other hardware modules. The other model is a mid-range device with pure Android software. This variant, reports suggest, will be part of Google’s Android One programme.
The U11 Life is expected to have an IP67 rating for dust and water resistance and come with the Edge Sense feature that allows you to open an app of your choice just by squeezing the device. Other things worth mentioning are a 2,600 mAh battery, a 16 MP selfie snapper, and a stock version of Android 8.0 Oreo without HTC’s Edge user interface on top.
